Trees are our first love and most of our fields are dedicated to the propagating, grafting, budding and growing of trees.
The trees in our own fields are mainly deciduous and traditional favourites with a few modern twists thrown in. Beech, birch, oak, maples, Limes plus many, many more and a range of varieties within each species. Some upright, some for smaller gardens, for avenues, for shelter, for a play place for the kids whatever your requirements for a tree within your space we have it.This is just a small selection and if you don’t see what you’re looking for please do contact us.
We can advise on spring interest, on autumn colour, we have evergreen trees and we have a range of the most spectacular specimens with cubed heads, with roof forms and espaliered forms trees.

Carpinus betulus / Hornbeam
The Hornbeam is a lovely shaped, simple tree that, like the Beech, holds onto some of it's leaves after they have died, giving it cover throughout the year. It is, unlike the similar Beech, unfussy to its location and soil and is faster growing. It's catkins open in Spring and has hop like fruit in late Summer through to Autumn

Carpinus betulus Fastigiata / Upright Hornbeam

Fagus sylvatica / Green beech
Beech either in tree or hedge form is a popular but glorious sight around the country and is an extremely smart option for a hedge and windbreak, being semi-evergreen with its striking autumn/winter colours and also as a tree with the added benefit of giving some coverage in the winter months without the price tag of the evergreen options. It is however slow growing so unless you are very patient then we would recommend a slightly larger size.
